Motivation isn’t enough to create lasting behavior change. The secret to success? Focus on consistency. In the words of behavior scientist BJ Fogg, Ph.D., it’s important to “make the habit so tiny you can do the baseline habit on any day.”

Dr. Fogg is the author of the New York Times bestselling book “Tiny Habits” and the director of the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University. He has spent over 20 years researching and teaching insights about human behavior with a special focus on health and productivity.

Dr. Fogg and his colleague, Stephanie Weldy, M.Ed., recently joined me for a live Q&A-style webinar hosted by CrossFit Health which I’m sharing here. We had a great conversation focused on why celebrating small habits is the key to creating huge transformations.
